Should the government back new subprime mortgages?

The government needs to get out of housing finance. The losses at the GSEs apporach $150 billion, and the FHA needs its own bailout. These are losses all of us who didn’t participate in the madness get to pay. And as long as the government continues to back 90% or more of loans for residential real estate, the very real possibility of another even larger bailout looms. Given these realities, government policy makers have been and should be focused on reducing the government’s exposure and minimizing taxpayer bailout dollars.

Government should clean its ass and hands before touching anything.
